Description: Conductive thread is a creative way to connect various electronics onto clothing. This thread can carry current for power and signals. While not as conductive as traces on a printed circuit board (PCB), this thread makes wearable clothing 'wearable'!

This thread is stainless steel making it extremely tarnish resistant. This thicker 6-ply thread gives it the ability to conduct much more power. Because of its thickness this thread is often laid on a fabric and then held in place with a over-stitch of non-conductive machine sewable thread.

This thread has a very low resistance of about 4 Ohms per linear foot and weighs about 0.35 ounces for the full 50 feet.

  • I did not think this stuff would be so difficult to handle. If you’re hand sewing, get something thinner! Conducts really well though.

  • You can absolutely fold, twist, weave, knit, knot, or whatever else you’d like to do with this without worrying about it breaking. It’s very, very flexible, like an embroidery thread, not at all like a wire.

  • Can this be folded and twisted without breaking? Will I have to expect some up resistance while doing this? Thanks!
